If you need a DIY tripple monitor mount, then I can give you the list of parts and a description of what to do, but I don't have any images uploaded to anything currently.
5x 1/2' steel pipe
2 or 4x 1/2 steel pipe 45 degree elbows*
1x 1/2' steel T junction
6x 1/2" aluminum conduit clamps (ask for ones that can be used to mount conduit to walls as they will have the necessary holes to screw into the MDF board)
3x MDF board cut to allow 1/2 inch on all sides from where they will be screwed into (this is a strength/support issue)
1x 12x12' steel plate
1x 1/2' flange
12 or 24 of 4mm x 20 screws
if 24 of the top, then 12x 4mm nuts
Connect 3 of the steel pipes do the "T" junction. Drill holes in the 12x12" steel plate to mount the flange & mount the flange. You'll want to flip the Plate over and counter-sync the wholes so that the bolts or large screws can lay flat, or if your good at welding you can skip the whole drill/screw portion and just weld the flange to the Plate.
You are going to want to put the flange close to one of the edges, minus about an inch to an inch and a half.
Take you 3x MDF boards, drill holes all the way through for the 4x4mm screws (4 per monitor). You can counter sink these as well to "hide" the screws. get them attached to the monitors. Follow this up by taking your T junction setup (not attached to the flang or base plate- again NOT attached) and place in the center of each board for laying out where the conduit straps will be screwed into.
For that last part, you can use short wood screws to screw down the conduit clamp, then un-screw them and drill out the holes, then use an additional 12 4mmx20 screws and Nuts to actually mount the monitors. If you choose to go this route, it will make life easier if you have to move or replace a monitor.
Once all the wholes/markings for the conduit straps are done. Mount the "T" junction to the Flange/base plate. Attached your 45 degree elbows. I stared this at the top because if you just use 2 your stuck with a 45 degree (which works nicely for mine and the op's needs) or you can use 4 and have any angle you want, but will require you to drop where your conduit straps mount by about and 1 and a 1/2. Attach the two remaining 1/2 steel pipe to the open ends of the 45 degree elbows. put the conduit clamps over the newly attached pipes and screw them into the mdf board and Your Mounting is done.
I'll set up a second drop box folder if you really really really want pictures.
